A few years ago, a beach holiday in Singapore was not particularly popular: tourists were alarmed by the proximity of the port, but the use of innovative cleaning systems and infrastructure development radically changed the situation. Now there are many beaches, all of them with free entry, clean, equipped with toilets, changing cabins, showers and even lockers with a combination lock.
According to populationmonster, the best beaches of the main island are concentrated on the east coast.
- East Coast Park, one of the most popular urban recreation areas in Singapore, offers a variety of entertainment, including sports and gastronomy, is famous for its well-groomed, clear sea and gently sloping sandy bottom.
- Changi Beach Park, one of the oldest coastal parks in Singapore with a length of about 3.3 km, still retains the atmosphere of a kampong fishing village: white sand, coconut palms, barbecue areas, benches and awnings – this is a great place for family holidays, swimming and picnics.
The most famous Singaporean beaches are located on Sentosa: the sea is clear there, the scenery is amazing, and almost every beach has its own “specialization”:
- Siloso Beachis popular with outdoor enthusiasts: there is bungee bungee, you can learn to surf on an artificial wave, go kayaking, go cycling and rollerblading, and the evening here is one big party.
- Families, couples and groups of friends adore Tanjong Beach: at night the atmosphere is very romantic, and during the day you can go SUP at the Stand Up Paddling School.
- Palawan Beachis a quiet beach for families: many cafes, shops and a wonderful observation deck.

Vacation in Singapore
For the first time, the city is often visited as part of a transit, limited to visiting the Gardens by the Bay park with its gigantic supertrees and, without fail, “checking in” at the Merlion statue. Those who decide to devote more time to Singapore will find a lot of discoveries and the highest concentration of impressions: unique attractions and colorful festivals, delicious food and rich traditions, the best clubs and bars in the world, the cleanest beaches, walks through historical places and shady exhibition grounds.
It is home to Universal Studios Singapore, Southeast Asia’s first Hollywood theme park, Adventure Cove Water Park, SEA Aquarium, one of the world’s largest oceanariums, Mega Adventure Park, many hotels and Resorts World Sentosa.
After spending a few days in Singapore, you can go further – get acquainted with the beauties of Thailand, Vietnam, Bali and Kuala Lumpur. Or go, for example, to Macau, Cambodia or even Australia with New Zealand, because the world’s largest cruise brands use Singapore as their home port. Cruise ships depart from Singapore’s two state-of-the-art terminals and arrive here all year round. Passenger ferries also run from the city to the Indonesian island of Bintan (about an hour on the way), to the picturesque Batam (45 minutes) and to the resort of Desaru on the Malay Peninsula(half an hour).
